HIGHLIGHTS: AFSC New Hampshire Program - October 2019 to November 2020

This extraordinary and challenging year has given us so many opportunities to build and to be the Beloved Community. In person and through video conferencing, we continued to connect, to learn, to organize, and to do the labor that is required of us to build the world that we want.

Together, over these past many months, we declared unapologetically that Black Lives Matter, that no human being is illegal, that everyone deserves to survive and thrive; and we deepened our commitment to live into these truths. Together, we acknowledged that the work of racial justice and immigrant justice and economic justice is OUR work, and that we need to move forward in loving accountability and encouragement to transform ourselves and our world, so that all of us are welcome and safe.

It has been a year of transitions for the AFSC New Hampshire program. We celebrated the remarkable legacy of Arnie Alpert, who retired in June having gifted us with vision, strategy and skills for nonviolent, revolutionary change-making for almost 40 years. We cheered Martin Toe as he completed his nearly two years as our Grassroots Organizer intern, and we hired another shining young adult leader from Concord, Lidia Yen. And we celebrated the arrival to our staff of the magnificent Grace Kindeke.

We are thankful, energized and inspired to be on this journey with each other and with you. Let us continue to care for ourselves as we move together into a new moment.
